    “BlackBerry leadership claims they’ve seen encouraging interest in the service from the ISV (independent software developer) community….”

    “Furthermore, this service will likely represent a new revenue source for BlackBerry, who’s representatives wouldn’t go into details about earnings predictions.”

    It’s statements like this that make this yet another bullshjt press release from this company. The whole thing is so ridiculously vague its hard not to double over in laughter everytime Beard opens his yap. As for this ‘solution’ what is so different about it that isn’t already on the market? Does this company seriously think its the only game in town offering a secure solution to professionals or enterprise? Pffft!

    The last time this joke company offered a subscription service was with BBM Meetings which they promptly shut down only 15 months later. Now they are going to try again? lmao!

      Just shut up. No one wants to hear your BS. Just go away

    • Jessica

      Actually it was a conference call 🙂

    • Shogun

      Same diff.

    • Rev0lver

      No. No it isn’t.

    • Chug that haterade

      Just like the “announcement” last week that was a leak… smh

    • Chug that haterade

      ROTFLMAO… yeah…. okay

    • Rev0lver

      Where did you get your business degree again?

    • Chug that haterade

      You’re a piece of work… one minute, you’re crying about BlackBerry losing money, the next minute you’re bashing them for shutting down BBM Meetings. So what should they have done oh all knowing seasoned CEO? Leave BBM Meetings to lose money to the likes of giants like Cisco and Microsoft?

      Btw… I love how you complain about personal attacks… yet that is all you do.

    ‘Marty Beard and other representatives went on to confirm that users would hold the keys to encrypt and decrypt certain conversations, which means that BlackBerry would not be involved in the decision to give any other party access to those keys.’

    Yikes. By ‘users’ I hope is meant app-purchasers, not the SDK-users.

    • Shogun

      “BlackBerry would not be involved in the decision to give any other party access to those keys.”

      So if that’s the case why has this company been caught handling over information to authorities demanding it, often without a warrant in all probability ? Beard is full of shjt as far as I’m concerned

    • Rev0lver

      As far as I’m concerned you are nothing but a troll

    • dannyR

      Somebody has to inform me that I cannot buy this SDK and distribute apps. That would make me feel more comfortable.

    • Shogun

      The point is moot. Few will bother with this in any substantive way to affect their bottom line.

    • Rev0lver

      Even if a few do bother, that’s a few more than will take any of your comments seriously. Hating everything must be a great existence….

    • Chug that haterade

      Oh, you mean just like your claim of BlackBerry not being able to update TCL made BlackBerrys?

    • Chug that haterade

      “Often without a warrant in all probability”

      This pretty much sums up 99 percent of your comments… nothing but speculative nonsense.

      Ps. Speaking of handing over information, try Googling “Lisa Jackson Podesta email”

    • It is a little scary. The answer on the call was pretty ambiguous according to Jessica.

  • I think this is a great new revenue stream for them and hopefully brings some jobs to Canada. As for the security concern, I am tired of hearing about it. No one cares about security so why is the question always asked?

    Working in Fraud possible has made me jaded but there is a high lack of concern for information protection on a personal level. Too many people pass the buck to others to protect them while they give boat loads of their information away to get more lives on candy crush or something lol

    • Shogun

      Yeah. I’m sure it’ll be a great revenue stream not unlike how all their other lame attempts to subscribe services went for them.
      And there is a reason no hard numbers are mentioned in their comments because they have none and are merely taking that shot in the dark that has become a staple of their operations

    • Chug that haterade

      Why do you care? I thought you weren’t a BlackBerry investor…

    • Chug that haterade

      Security is one of those things that most people really don’t pay much attention to until after the fact…. and then they wish they had it… like car or flood insurance.

    Love the article and correct me if I’m wrong. The Dtek50 and 60 are produced by TCL. You printed here that they will be produced by Optiemus in India. I’ve understood that Optiemus will be producing their own BlackBerry’s for that region.
